Time Fillers

There's something about coming into work on a Monday. It's an in-my-face reminder that the weekends over.  No more sleeping in, lounging around, and filling up my time with "activities" I want/need to do. I dread Sunday's, mainly Sunday night. And somewhere in my mind, one that doesn't always make sense, I often think by wishing hard enough, I can make work disappear for another day. Is it strange that I honestly believe that? But come Tuesday, the dread of coming into work lessens, and I'm far more ok with it than I was the night before. Plus, I work with funny people. I think that right there is worth coming into work for. They definitely provide far more entertainment than I'd find staying at home and hang out with Tobias all day. Who, by the way, is becoming more and more like a needy child these days. But we/I love him regardless. And the beauty of it is, when we don't want to deal with him, we just put him outside. You can't do that with children. Or can you? But that's beside the point. All I'm really trying to say is, I love weekends, and I wish somehow, someway, they could last a little bit longer, or be eternal. I wouldn't mind. Even with a three day work week last week, it still didn't seem long enough. So, while I'm back at work, filling up my time, here are a few gem of gems to fill up yours. You have nothing better to do, right? Oh, wait, you work too? I feel for you! 
  • Made this last night for dinner, with whole wheat flour. It's becoming one of our favorites. Thanks, Jana (if you even read this). Have I ever told you how much I love your cooking blog? 
  • I don't know how or when I discovered this, this or this blog, but I love them. They make me want to get my craft on. If only I could get paid for this stuff...
  • If only I had cute little girls to do all of these fun things for. Maybe one day...
  • Free dippin dots anyone? 
  • These blogs are awesome. Who doesn't love free/discounted things, right?
  • And last but not least, for now anyway, The Mormon Bachelor. I'm not sure if I find it as entertaining as I once did, but this sure helps.  
I love discovering new blogs. I'm a blog addict if you will, and not ashamed. So, what blogs do you enjoy reading and getting ideas from? I'd love to add, yet another blog, to my already over-spilling list.

And because the weekend was originally the main point of this post, here are some pictures of us for your viewing pleasure. We decided to spice it up a bit and go bowling. I honestly don't remember the last time I went bowling, but this I do know, I think I bowled my highest game yet. A 130, follwed by a "close" second to J. Love.

Oh, what's that? You want to see how we bowled such awesome or not so awesome scores?

 

Yes, you heard him correctly, he is indeed "gobbling" at the end of his strike.
He got the one and only turkey of the game.
